The Town School Library is used by students and faculty for research, instruction, homework, and recreational reading, and as a community space for the entire school.
All members of the Town School community including students, parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members are welcome to borrow books, videos, and audiobooks from the library.
The Town School librarians:
Respect students’ intellectual freedom, access to information, and individual pathways to life-long learning.
Spark student curiosity by co-teaching and collaborating with teachers to develop students’ skills in finding, evaluating, creating, and sharing information.
Ensure that everyone’s story is celebrated and shared in order to foster a feeling of belonging.
Model and teach best practices of academic and online integrity.
Build a community culture that supports the joy of reading.
Program and Information
The librarians teach a progressive program of skills instruction in all grades. Primary level activities are centered around literature appreciation while the middle grades concentrate on information and media literacy.
Town believes that everyone has a story to tell. In addition to improving cognitive capacity, reading promotes global competency and empathy. Check out this list of favorite stories from the Town School faculty.
